r. It seemws that in the University of
u Kentucky's university extension work
d an effort is making to induce minis
m- ters to take an agricultural course,
e wxth the expectation that in their
country charges, this knowledge will
work for community betterment and
n increase of ministerial influence as
n well. A practical exposition of tihis
F. opinion is before us in the Rev. S.
n L. Riggs, the pastor of the Metho
- dist Church at St. Francisville, and
who is also an active vice-president
a of the local Truck Growers' Associa
tion. He ha.s up-to-date knowledge
it of trucking methods and has contrib
n uted some excellent articles on the
i. subject to this paper, which have
t without doubt been very helpful to
e trucker];. Mr. Riggs has also inti
e mate knowledge of poultry-raising,
1- and his hillside parsonage yard, dot
^d with white leghorns is one of
the prettiest sights imaginable.
Theology and farming may help the
minister's people, but it should not
be a necessary adjunct, as it so of

like John M. Parker, a Democrat

Town is very quiet this week as
the farmers are all busy at home.
The parish has produced a fine corn
crop, and the farmers are encourag
ed about their hay. Cotton is not
coming up to expectatipns, nor is it
equal to that of the crop in contigui
ous parishes. Since it is not a ques
tion of either land or weather, for
:ur land can't be beaten, and we've
had all the weather there was, cut
off the same piece as our neighbors,
the reason must be looked for in the
management of the crop. West Fe
li.ciana must ask-and find out--how
it differs from others in this line.
Can it be that the need of more
small farmers, who themselves till
the field, and are intelligent to no
tice every change taking place in
small areas, has not a great deal to
do with present non,success? "A nig

IN MEMORY OF F. T. WIMBISH.
Castle Hall, Bayou Sara Lodge K.
We have reason to be thankful
for many blessings, and in our hearts
we ought to be truly thankful for
all the favors we have received from
our Father's bountiful hand, libut
w hen we awaken to the knowledge
that the King of Terrors has again
invaded our Lodge, and has taken
captive one of our most faithful ani
best loved brothers, we cannot help
mourning the fact that we have suf
fe-red great affliction during the past
year, and now with already bleeding
hearts we are called upon to record
these feeble expressions of our sor
row over the death of Brother Fred
eri(ck Tunnard Wimbish.
WHEREAS, This good brother was
a man much loved by all, because of
his faithful devotion to all the duties
of life, as exemuplified in his loving
care of those dependent upon him,
and his strict practice of those great
moral teachings of Pythianism, there
fore be it
RESOLVED, That we mourn his
death as a great bereavement, and
pray to God to give to him those
blessings rich and deep which are
set apart for and allotted to the
Good and the True.
To those ofihisrelatives and friends
who are heart-stricken at this loss
which we have all sustained, we can
only say that "He who tempers the
wind to tlhec shorn lamb" looks down
with compassion upon those in afflic
tion and distress and while our
brother's mortal frame is laid in the
dust, by the chilling blast of death,
his spirit, by a life or Truth, has
sprung into immortal beauty and is
now resting in those glorious realms
of Peace and Love beyond the skies.
